Today Apple announced an upgrade to the Mac Pro line making the eight cores standard. That is one screaming machine. (Of course I said the same thing about my 512k Atari ST about 20 years ago so it is probably all relative.)
Anyway, I'm not so excited about the Mac Pro since I run solely on my laptop. However, the fact that Apple would announce these new machines the week before Macworld leads me to believe there must be several other things shiny and new to share. Hmmmm.
